Still cant get over the fact that last Friday when Facebook went down for not even 20 minutes...19 to be exact...people down in the city of La Crescenta called 911 to ask the cops for help. I think it happened in other cities too..but in La Crescenta which isn’t that far from Pasadena, the police department went on Twitter to write “Facebook isn't a law enforcement issue, please don't call us about it being down, we don't know when it will be back up”.
OMG..who would do that?. Now I do admit I once called 911 when I was “trapped” in the last 49er parking lot after a game at Candlestick Park. It was 2 and a half hours after the game, pitch black and not a car was moving. I was having a mini “panic attack” and I stupidly thought the police could help me out. And no...I hadn't been drinking. Apparently though, in my defense, a lot of people called 911 after the Niner games at Candlestick...also to say they were stuck in the parking lot. And from what I read this weekend, some people felt that way at the new Levi's stadium as well..LOL
You ever call 911 and say “what the hell was I thinking”...
But this is the other thing on Facebook this morning that also shows how it has so become part of our life. 7 out of 10 people (mainly women) have someone they met online and consider them a “good” friend even though they've never met them in person.
And before you jump all over me..and say never....think about some of the people you're
friends with on Facebook. You know them pretty well, don't you, because of their status updates.
I find myself calling lots of FB “friends” friends. I have come to know some of you so well...and I'm thinking vice-verse.
I'm okay with that....hope you are too “friend”!!!!!
